Jimmy Fallon joined the cast of "Guys With Kids" for a rundown of TV's greatest theme songs on "Late Night."

In the grand tradition of Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake's "History of Rap" (allthreeparts), the "Late Night" host gave another music genre a sound summary on Tuesday night's show -- with a little help from his friends.

Joined by the cast of "Guys With Kids," the sitcom co-created and produced by Fallon, he kicked of a "History of TV Theme Songs."

After lamenting the fact that many shows just don't have a true theme tune anymore, Fallon pulled out a microphone and began belting out the theme to "The Jeffersons." Before long, Anthony Anderson, Jesse Bradford and Zach Cregger took the stage and contributed to the remarkable roundup.

They cycled through the TV greats, including the themes for "All in the Family," "Golden Girls," "Friends," "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," "Facts of Life," "Good Times," "Greatest American Hero," "Three's Company," "Sandford & Sons," "Full House," "Saved By the Bell," "Happy Days" and "Cheers."

Watch the clip above for the full salute to TV songs.

"Guys With Kids," which features a theme song sung by Fallon himself, airs Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. on NBC.
